If you want to make a website, you need two things - your own domain and a hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual website address that you enter in an Internet browser to access a site, while the hosting space is where your website data will be. These are 2 closely connected, but independent services, while many people believe that registering the domain is enough. Similar to the disk space and the monthly traffic features which a given web hosting plan offers, there are a certain number of registered domains that you can include as hosted which means that you can have the web content for them in some account even if the domains have been registered using a different provider. In technical terms, it does not matter if a domain is registered and hosted using the same company or is registered with one company and directed to another one - in either case your sites will function in exactly the same way.
